HOW RIPE SHOULD BANANAS BE FOR BANANA BREAD?
Your bananas should be more brown than yellow and look like they’re ready to toss out. Basically they’re starting to liquify inside making them perfect for baking into your banana bread. If your bananas are not there yet don’t worry you can easily “ripen” them in 10 minutes using the steps below.
HOW DO YOU RIPEN BANANAS?
If you need to ripen bananas for a recipe like this banana bread just place them on a baking sheet and bake at 350F (177C) for about 10 minutes or until the skin blackens and the bananas are soft. Allow to cool a bit, then remove skin, transfer to bowl and mush up!
If you have some almost ripe bananas and a little time you can store them in a closed paper bag and the ethylene they naturally emit will ripen them at an accelerated rate.
